Birthday Camping

What better thing to do on a rainy cold weekend....go camping haha. Friday it was actually pretty out. I had a t-shirt and capri pants on. When the sun went down it got cold and then the rain started. As you can see though our tent (on the right hand side) is fantastic. We build a canopy over it. We have room for about 15 people to sit under. So the rain didn't bother us at all. It was forecast to rain all day Saturday too. Saturday it didn't start as early as expected and it was really so light we were sitting by the fire and didn't really notice the rain at all. It did rain later in the day harder but we just moved under the canopy. Then it stopped with several hours left to sit by the fire in the evening. There was 10 of us camping. We also had some people stop to visit too. It ended up being a great weekend. Of course today was beautiful when it was time to tear down and come home.

Today Jeremiah turned 17!!! How is that possible? I swear I blinked in there and missed several years. When we got home he had some presents waiting. Here is one he was really happy about...
It's a hand held PlayStation game system and it came with a game he likes. Next vacation he will have something else to do while in the van traveling along with us. He got some other games, a carrying case, and some books he found at Disney he can't wait to read. So he was one happy kiddo. We have a small cough from being outside all weekend so I hope that goes away soon. Yeah it was cold and rainy but every second was worth it. We have some fantastic friends!!!!

  3. Happy birthday Jeremiah! That games thing sounds good. Camping - less so. When they put fitted bathrooms in tents, I'll give it a try!

  7. Happy Birthday to Jeremiah! Where do the years go to?
    Campings not for me either, not even glamping! Do you have glamping in America? It's glamorous camping. But not as good as a proper hotel!
